Lento is the first moth to be kindly received at home. And this is not only due to its humorous design, since the Jalo Lento smoke alarm also actively ensures safety.
The Paolo Suhonen designed Lento is a real treasure for your safety with all its playfulness included. It will work as a normal smoke detector when it comes to fire and smoke: you will be warned in time: an 85dB loud warning tone also wakes from the deepest sleep. Lento’s complete housing acts as prove button and has an LED-display for its status. The smoke detector by Jalo is also deactivated for a while if desired and it will also warn in time if the battery has to be changed.
The oversized insect out of ABS plastic only consumes 15mA, which enables about 5 years of duration. Lento is simply fixed at the ceiling by means of a 3M adhesive tape. There it will attract attention, since a smoke detector isn’t expected to be a designer’s piece.Also in our blog:
